Oh, I also enjoy/love doing meaningful work!
Before we get any further, there is a quote from Bill Gates that I'd like to share:
I will always choose a lazy person to do a difficult job because a lazy person will find an easy way to do it.
About this site
In creating my portfolio this way, my aim was to not only give you a representation of who I am professionally, but equally important, who I am as a person. I've tried to interject bits of my personality into the descriptions.
I hope the takeaway is that I'm a good human who loves design and the design process, and I truly care about your experience.
Another thing to note is that i'm currently on a bit of a journey. My goal is to shift from: From design leader to... design leader.
As part of Polaris Alpha, I had the opportunity to stand up the companies first cross-functional UX/UI team. We were doing some really cool stuff. Stuff I miss and want to do more of. I have recently taken it upon myself to enroll in the Google UX certification course. My hope is the get more up to speed on current UX trends and practices and apply those skills in meaningful ways.
I don't know how this quote makes you feel, but it certainly doesn't resonate with me. I understand what he was trying to say, but I think it completely discounts the hard work that goes into great process.
I love tackling difficult jobs. I also love finding the easiest way to do things. It's not because I'm lazy. It's because I see time as valuable and hate to see it wasted. Why should we have overly complex experiences simply because no one has taken the effort to make it better?
Speaking of making something better, take a look at the work I did for Fieldforce!

If you have design needs, we should talk. I'd love to help!
